Boot device not found

I know there are many threads on this but I'm having the same problem.

Proxmox: 5.2-1
Guest: Windows 10 Builder edition from a lenovo laptop
Ran Mergeraid.reg as administrator, verified first registry key was set in regedit.
Method: Clonezilla source/destination over lan. Beginner mode.

Clonezilla finishes quickly without error, on first boot I get the green screen with no boot device.

Any advice is appreciated

EDIT: For anyone following you need to detach the disk, edit it, then reattach. Windows is booting now.
Fyi. You can use virtuo.
It just takes a bit more effort.
You use sata first boot the windows and install update the virtuo drivers inthe windows. Than you change the disk to virtuo. And it should work.
Is that recommended for performance issues? I did the same with the network drivers just now, booted to e1000, downloaded the virt drivers then booted back with virt network.
